I went fishing on the San Gabriel yesterday and came across a first. I caught a fish with one eye. I assume he had a second one before- but due to some unfortunate mishap he lost it. The thing we straight dry socket and he just continued mission.

Which leads me to question, how he’s been able to keep on keeping on? I can see him now one eyeing the hopper fly he took. Did he glare at it? Was there maybe a pebble sitting in it’s place before the fight ensued? Will he be able to find another?

I released him gently as I could and sent him in his way. Tough booger. I’ll see him on the high ground.

All the way!
